Guitar Lessons

While I specialize in the styles of rock and heavy metal, I am comfortable teaching other styles as well, like pop.

Topics include learning songs, technique, theory, improvisation, reading tablature and composition. I make the lessons tailored to the student's goals, desire and ability. Most importantly, I make sure they're fun! Fun is key to keeping you motivated and inspired to practice and improve.

I am also a signed recording artist and can offer advice on the industry, networking, getting gigs, etc for those on that path.

Whether you are advanced and want to shred like John Petrucci from Dream Theater, or just starting and want to learn to strum some chords and learn a Taylor Swift song, I dedicate myself to making sure you improve while having fun.

I am happy to take on all levels from beginner to advanced, and all ages.

Overview

Specializing in the styles of hard rock and heavy metal.

I started playing guitar in 1987 after hearing Guns N' Roses and knew that playing guitar was what I wanted to do with my life. Majored in music through high school taking a few semesters of music theory and then started teaching privately in the early 1990's.

During this time I started to get into bands like Megadeth, Dream Theater and highly technical guitar. I started performing in clubs and bars throughout New York city at the age of 16. Played and headlined many famous NYC venues such as CBGB's, L'amour, The Pyramid Club, The Bank and The Crazy Country Club. Opened for many national and international artists like Dee Snider, Twisted Sister, L.A. Guns, and Anvil.

Signed recording contract in 2007. Wrote, recorded, produced and toured in support of a label release.

I signed a recording contract in 2015 with Ulterium Records for my band Millennial Reign. Our album, Carry The Fire, was released October 30, 2015 in Europe and North America.

Able to call upon a wide array of advanced techniques such as sweep picking arpeggios, picking through arpeggios, high speed staccato picking (alternate picking), long legato lines, etc. I have many song writing credits on many releases.
